### Linear Perspective

The Illusion of Space

• Is a drawing technique used for creating an illusion of space where parallel lines converge on the viewer’s horizon line

• The following items play a major role in creating the illusion of space:

• Horizon Line: viewer’s point of where the vanishing point lies; distant convergence of the sky and ground

• Vanishing Point: point where all perspective lines converge

• Perspective Lines: lines that recede to the horizon line

• Overlap: objects closer appear in front of distant objects

• Scale: objects farther away appear smaller than those that are closer

• Ellipse: circle placed into perspective

• Atmospheric/Aerial Perspective: object far away appear less distinct, bluer in color and light is reduced

• Horizon Line: viewer’s point of where the vanishing point lies; distant convergence of the sky and ground

• Overlap: objects closer appear in front of distant objects

• Scale: objects farther away appear smaller than those that are closer

• Ellipse: circle placed into perspective

• Atmospheric Perspective: object far away appear less distinct, bluer in color and light is reduced
